We have an annoying historical situation:

We have static files as follows:

And the Tomcat WebApp under:

We forward every request under /webApp from Apache to the tomcat container with mod_jk

On the homepage "example.com/index.html" we use an ugly FRAME to include a full html (originally a jsp) from the webApp because we need some webApp (Tomcat) functionaly on the homepage. So the Frame's source points "/webApp/main.jsp"

Is there a nicer way to do it? We are concerned about SEO.

I am not sure Rewrites will work because they will drop the Tomcat functionality because it looks at the page as an html, for example the Jsession may be ignored.
